The Characteristic Of Low Acyl Gellan Gum

Characteristic Advantage
1. Very Low dosage, form gel at 0.05-0.25% concentration Low Acyl Gellan Gum is a very effective gelling agent
2. Excellent thermal stability and acid stability 1.Little effect to gel strength after heat sterilization.
2.Its powder form allows longer term of use and long-term stability even under acid condition.
3.Sodium or potassium irons can form thermal reversible gel, while Magnesium or calcium irons form thermal un-reversible gels Can be made into thermal reversible and thermal un-reversible gels
4.Good combination with other hydrocolloids Adjustable gel elasticity and rigidity
5.Good compatibility with other ingredients Can be widely used in many formulations
6.Can form gel between pH 3.5~7.0 Can form high quality gels and have good gel strength in acid to neutral food formulations.
7.Anti-aging function Prevent aging and viscosity raising of starch
8.Not easy lead to enzymolysis Enabling flexibility in the manufacturing process, very suitable for Microbiological media and plant media.

Side Effect of Gellan Gum

Gellan gum poses laxative effect if ingested in large amount due to fermentation by the intestinal microflora. Other than that, gellan gum is safe for using in food. Research on human consuming large amount(175-200mg/kg bw) of gellan gum for over 3 weeks indicates no side effects.

Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements. Gellan gum is considered safe by FDA according to existing data and granted GRAS status.
